NFL approved expanding replay to account for loose ball situations

The NFL has voted to expand instant replay to include loose ball situations. From CBS Sports:

The competition committee proposed more protection for the back of a player’s legs when he is rolled up by a defender. It also proposed an expansion of replay that would cover a loose ball in the middle of a play (like the Navarro Bowman fumble in the playoffs) and that the clock wouldn’t stop after a sack.

CBS’ Jason La Canfora is reporting that the proposal to expand replay has passed.
